      You might try a tack shop and have one custom made.

              He did'nt say he could not find the wesbites, he said he could not find the item's ON the websites.

              And i just searched the Boston Leather site and under "Firefighting accessories" their is no chin strap's even listed. I used the search engine on the site as well and found nothing. If they do make one, they do not list it on the site.

              As far as i can recall, leather helmet straps are tough to find now and are not popular do to comfort issues. A leaTher helmet strap strong enough to be reliable would be thick and uncomfortable. If they made the leather thinner to make it comfortable, it would not be strong enough. 5 Alarm does make one, if you go the site and click on "Store" and scroll down, it is there. Personally, i would stick with Nomex or go with a Milwaukee strap. I just never liked the stiff feel of them.

                Scroll to the bottom, it's there in two different flavors. Thanks Cap.

                    When I did a search "Milwaukee Strap" came-up, try that.

                      I bet your "airmask" has a zipper over the mouth.

                        Anybody ever use the leather suspenders? I would be interested in that. I wonder if they could make them for the loop snap for Morning Pride?

                          Check out the 5 alarm link. They have them for both I believe. They even have them for high back drops. The guys that use them here like them.

                            Boston Leather's suspenders have that option. I am using them currently and like them. They get more comfortable with time as the leather breaks in.

                              I tired leather suspenders and had one gripe that made me get rid of them. They are so ridgid that if you pulled up on your Bunker pants the suspenders would lift off your shoulder(s) is you were not wearing your coat. Then they would either flop off your shoulder and have to be put back or if they did not flop off your shoulder, they would move out of position and require readjustment. Another guy i know who has tham said that the issue would go away over time as they broke in and got softer. But after a month, i gave up.
